I find it challenging to motivate myself in the winter. I really just want to stay curled up in a blanket, computer on my lap, reading about how to be motivated … instead of actually being motivated and going out into the studio to print.
But, this past Sunday, I got out from under my comfy blanket and went out to the printshop to work on pulling some proofs of my newest etching.
I have been thinking about pulling these proofs for a few months now so it felt great to finally get it done.
I’m going to use these four prints to assess where I might add colour, aquatint, more line work, etc.
I printed these on Sommerset paper with Graphic Chemical etching ink (intense black).
